Description

Embark on a captivating journey with our professional guide who will pick you up from your hotel in the morning. Your destination is Bulqize, an eastern Albanian city renowned for hosting the largest chromium mine in the country. As you depart from Tirana, picturesque mountains will accompany you throughout the 1-hour and 15-minute journey. Upon reaching Bulqize, a leisurely walk along the city's boulevard awaits, offering insights into its rich history and providing a glimpse of the mountain adorned with chromium mine galleries. Enhance your experience by visiting the Chromium Museum located in the heart of the city. Continue your expedition by car for approximately 15 minutes until you reach the trailhead. Here, embark on a scenic hike towards the Skanderbeg Tower Rock, positioned at an elevation of 950 meters above sea level. Revel in the breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys on the side of the trail. The path is safe and easy to walk, with over half of it meandering through tree-covered landscapes. As you approach the balcony, a tree-free zone reveals a stunning view of nature. Following a moment of relaxation and enjoyment, retrace your steps along the same trail to visit the charming Dushaj Waterfall, a 15-meter cascade harmoniously integrated into the natural surroundings. Subsequently, continue your walk to the Kulla Hupi guesthouse. This over 230-year-old restored house provides a fascinating glimpse into the lifestyle of Albanians from two centuries ago. The surrounding environment is elegantly adorned with trees, flowers, and greenery, creating an idyllic setting. Conclude your excursion with a lunch featuring traditional local dishes. Post-lunch, commence your journey back to Tirana along the same scenic route.
